Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Jerry was last seen at approximately 5:30am at his residence in the vicinity of the 24200 block of Old Malin Highway in Malin, Oregon.
He was last seen driving away from the residence in his white and brown 1986 GMC pickup truck. He was planning to go hunting. McKoen planned to head east of Bly near Lakeview. After he didn't return home, his parents reported him missing.
Jerry's vehicle was located on October 8, 2002 just west of Medicine Lake Road, in a heavily wooded area south of Door Knob Snowmobile Park in Siskiyou County, California. In the truck, investigators found no signs of foul play, just some clothes and food. McKoen was known to be resourceful in the woods, and his family told investigators they thought he could protect himself.
Investigators, search and rescue officials, and family and friends combed the perimeter for four days. Efforts included dogs, helicopters, search and rescue officials on four wheelers, and people on horseback. Nothing was found.
